I have researched each of these programs. In case it will save others time and effort, here is a "status report" of what I found:

Austin Community College – web site says nothing about a distance program

Del Mar College - requires on-site clinicals

Panola College - requires on-site clinicals

Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi – web site says nothing about a distance program

Western Governors University - does NOT offer a fully distance program for initial licensure as an RN. They do offer a BSN for initial licensure which requires attendance at clinicals in one of 5 cities across the US. Those cities are located in: Southern California, Texas, Florida, (Indianapolis) Indiana and Utah. The school advises that "visiting" to complete clinicals is not feasible. If you wish to complete their program, it would be necessary to relocate to the city where clinicals will be scheduled. It may be necessary to attend clinicals any of the 7 days per week. The program requires 900 hours of clinical experience/supervision.

Good luck to any and everyone striving to progress in a career but challenged by access to appropriate training. I count myself among the many in the same boat. So far, it looks like the only truly distance options for those looking to do a LPN to RN program are Excelsior and ISU. If anyone has other suggestions, please share! Thanks.

Del Mar no longer offers online program after they got in trouble with the BON.

TAMUCC offers an E-Line BSN track. The program is completed online & clinicals are completed via a preceptor. TAMUCC is INCREDIBLY competitive.
